Oral health is important at every age, but it is crucial when your teeth are still developing. Establishing a positive oral care routine now as well as regular checkups and cleanings at our dental office can make a huge difference for their future smile. Our dental office is equipped to help not just young patients, but also those who have special needs. We work hard to provide a comfortable and welcoming dental experience for your child. If it’s time for their first appointment, Warnick and Semder are ready to answer your call for children's dentistry in St. Albans, WV!
During your child’s visit, we’ll be gentle, caring and accommodating towards their needs every step of the way. When your child visits at a relatively young age, we’ll spend more of your visit discussing proper at-home oral care and treatments to keep in mind as their mouth develops. Of course, we always take the time to remove any plaque or tartar that we do see and confirm that teeth are erupting as planned.
As your child’s teeth develop, they’ll need to practice their oral care routine in between regular visits to the dental office. However, some teeth are more susceptible to tooth decay than others, including the molars and premolars. With composite resin dental sealants, our dental office can seal the many pits and fissures away from oral bacteria. This reduces the rate at which plaque and tartar can form on teeth and protects them for up to 10 years without issue.
When your child has special needs, it can be worrisome not knowing whether or not your doctor is capable of meeting their accommodations. While this may be true for some dentists in the field, it is not the case when you visit Warnick and Semder. Not only do we take the steps to ensure your child’s special needs are met when you arrive, but we always remain patient and kind during the course of their appointment.
Whether your child has anxiety, fear or special needs that make dental care difficult to receive, our dental office has a solution that can reduce all three. Through sedation dentistry with nitrous oxide, we can make your child feel far more comfortable in a safe and highly-regulated fashion. This ensures that they can get the dental care they need in a relaxing way and environment. Nitrous oxide is administered through a nasal mask, allowing for quick, on-the-fly adjustments to the provided sedative. Once complete, we can remove the effects of the sedative as quickly as they appeared.
